Hillary Clinton has dismissed a 2024 presidential bid by maintaining that Joe Biden will stand again and that any move by her into the political spotlight would detract from his reelection efforts.

Clinton used an interview with the Financial Times on Friday to rule out a presidential run.

She told the newspaper it was “out of the question” pointing to Biden’s intention to run for reelection.

Breitbart reports: The former Secretary of State went further by offering a more detailed observation that her entry to the field would take the focus off the incumbent who she would rather support than challenge:

As Breitbart News reported, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed his intentions last November even as polling shows he is at odds with the wishes of voters.

“That’s his intention,” Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One, underlining varied reports the 79-year-old has been telling advisers and staff he will be back.
